I have written a song. How and where can I register my song?

When you create a new and original song, it is automatically copyrighted. You don’t have to do anything else. For general copyright information, go to www.auteursrecht.nl.

Sometimes you have to prove that you are the creator of a musical work. You can do this by registering the work and the date it was created with a notary. Another option is to file an I-DEPOT with the Benelux Office for Intellectual Property (www.boip.int). You also need to upload an audio file.
